It sounds like your granddaughter had a great time.
It sounds like the Premier and the Mexi Navy had no problem with each other out there.
BD Rule #1:
Newbies must post pics of gf/wife.
a new yawka podding about socal fishing? Have you ever been to SoCal?
Its more of heads up to everyone on the rail to wake up, pay attention, and - if need be - GTF out of the way.

That's a good idea. Bad things & people dying only happen offshore.

yeah. If the outdrives were up, it may have slid all the way back in and started floating again.
It was an exercise in

Go to the surf (or lake elsinore), take the hook off one of your jigs, and practice.
you are absolutely correct, Joe. Good for you. :appl:
If the sleeping people died from smoke inhalation, the smoke detectors did not activate.
isnt one required by the CG for this trip? or is it just 2 captains that are requried?

This was NOT the boats fault. Just leaving fish "on ice" wont guarantee that they will remain cold throughout the packages.

what makes you think it was from the furnace?
sounds like the skipper should have found some nicer water for you..... less wind and 1-2' rollers perhaps?

Pushing that little button to "test" them only tests the battery....
I'll let the forensics guys figure out HOW the fire started.
My concern is why NO smoke detectors went off........
It sounds like the boats need to hire an electrical engineer to let them know exactly how many battery charges can be in use at any one time on...
This time 34 people died...not just a bunch of sand crabs
make sure you know where the escape hatch is and make DAMNED SURE that the bunk under it isn't used for storage of any sort.
in all fairness, he wasn't onboard and doesn't know what happened. Plus, he's had a few days to talk with his lawyers about a public statement
somebody has to run the galley. and clean the heads. and change the sheets in the bunkroom
